METRO is developing a long-range plan for transit services in the Greater Houston area with the goal of providing more transportation choices for more people. The organization recently launched the second phase of the METRONext Moving Forward Plan and seeks input from the public through a series of public meetings beginning January 26.
The proposed $7.5 billion plan was developed over two years after more than 100 public meetings and substantial comments. The plan would invest in roads, bus systems and rail lines in an effort to achieve greater mobility and potentially reduce automobile traffic.
During the first phase of the project, METRO gathered public comments and ideas that included increased connectivity, quicker travel times, reliable and safe rides, enhanced customer experience and the use of more advanced technology. Since that time, METRO has identified a long-range Vision Plan and key projects to achieve faster commutes and more frequent service.
The open houses begin Saturday, January 26. Citizens also can provide feedback at METRONext.org.
Details for the Memorial District meeting:
Wednesday January 30, 2019
6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Houston Community College (HCC) Spring Branch Campus, 1010 West Sam Houston Pkwy N. Houston, Texas 77043.
METRO plans to place the comprehensive plan on the November 2019 ballot.
